We’ve tested the HI HAT, which was assembled using the included instructions, using the WobbleMeter 2.0.
Our stability tests using the WobbleMeter measures the wobble of a standing desk.
Using the same methods against the same scale for a variety of desks, we compare results from a variety of standing desks manufacturers.
We share our results on the Scoreboard page. Similar to golf, the lower the score, the better.
Smaller totals mean there isn’t much wobble in the standing desk.

Updated Test Results
Here are our results of the HI HAT WobbleMeter test, starting with the True Wobble Test.
True Wobble Test
We’re continually improving the WobbleMeter with the goal of a more accurate representation of a desk’s wobble. We improved the WobbleMeter two ways:
- Updating to a better bearing housing
- Updating to a more accurate arrow
HI HAT Testing, Part 2
Using the WobbleMeter 2.0, testing results changed. The scores differed enough that we decided to test our Bonita creating a fair comparison.
Here are the results of our updated HI HAT testing:
|Pull||5 lbs||10 lbs||15 lbs||Total||5 lbs||10 lbs||15 lbs||Total|
|Pull||5 lbs||10 lbs||Total||5 lbs||10 lbs||Total|

Using the WobbleMeter 2.0, HI HAT’s updated results varied.
Although the overall numbers changed, our observation still holds true. At lower heights, the HI HAT desk is very stable. However, there significant increases in wobble at 46-inches.
The legacy HON Coordinate is our next WobbleMeter test.
